    Good Morning Ladies,

     

    I thought it would be great to have a forum especially for decor at the Majestic Elegance, so please feel free to post comments, tips and questions. :o)

     

    For those planning to take your own decorations, especially chair sashes, do you know the fee to have to WC tie all the sashes to each of the chairs for the ceremony and for dinner?   Or does someone in your family have to do this duty?

      I asked my wedding coordinator this, and for any type of decoration that we wouldn't want to have our guests do she referred me to the decoration setup pricing they have. I've also heard brides say they had a few touches added at no cost. I guess it depends on how extensive the decorating is. If its a lot, I think they'll charge you per the pricing they have, if its a few things they probably won't. I wanted to have paper lanterns hung in the ballroom, I'm guessing they'll charge me according to the pricing since it would seem to be a little more work than just placing some extra items on the tables. When I think about it though, the pricing is way too high just to place sashes on chairs. Your best be would be to ask the coordinator specifically, "I just want my own sashes placed on the chairs, would there be a cost to do only that?" I've learned you have to be really specific with them when asking them any pricing questions :)

            Thanks for sharing, I was wondering about the decoraton fees. I guess if you plan on having a lot of decorating, it's worth it!

              I guess the prices aren't too terribly bad if you have a ton of decor items, but I feel like placing my own bought sashes on chairs for the dinner and ceremony and putting raffia fans and ceremony programs on the chairs is just not worth $415. I'd rather use less than half of that to buy two members of our families nice gifts to show our appreciation for helping us set up the decor.

                I'm still trying to decide on a decoration package...I wanted to have the aqua tulle and aqua sashes, but I think its like $500 or something for the ceremony alone! ( I don't have the papers in front of me)...so I'm thinking about whether I should even have a decoration package. Or if I should get the decoration package for the reception...just not sure what to do...
